Bridge Design Projects

PennDOT (5-0) Replacement of Irish Creek Road Bridge, Berks County, PA

This project involved the replacement of an existing prestressed concrete adjacent beam bridge with a new adjacent PS box beam bridge and associated roadway improvements for PennDOT 5-0. The previously existing bridge was classified as structurally deficient and functionally obsolete due to aging and deterioration, and substandard alignment and profile. The new bridge has a widened bridge deck, improved safety features with new guide rails and end terminals, an improved hydrological opening and approach roadway drainage, etc. Land acquisition and utility relocation were both required and channel diversion was used during the bridge construction.

PennDOT (2-0) Bridge Replacement , Mifflin County, PA

This project involved the replacement of an existing multi I-beam bridge with a new precast concrete box culvert and any associated roadway improvements for PennDOT (2-0). The existing bridge was classified as structurally deficient and functionally obsolete due to aging and deterioration, and substandard alignment and profile.  The new structure will have increased structure width and improved alignment as well as safety features and removing the current speed limit posting at the bridge.

The project involved a crucial aspect of hydraulic and hydrological analysis, specifically determining the hydraulic opening required for the bridge. The analysis and culvert design were performed by a program called HEC-RAS. 

PennDOT (5-0) Replacement of Shartleville Road Bridge over Plum Creek, Berks County, PA

The Shartleville Road Bridge project involved the replacement of an existing prestressed concrete adjacent beam bridge with a new adjacent PS box beam bridge and any associated roadway improvements for PennDOT (5-0). The bridge is located at about a half mile downstream of the State Route 4022 bridge which was also to be replaced at the same time. The existing bridge is classified as structurally deficient and functionally obsolete due to aging and deterioration, and substandard alignment and profile. The new bridge has a widened bridge deck, improved safety features with new guide rails and end terminals, improved hydrological opening and approach roadway drainage, etc. Land acquisition and utility relocation were both required and channel diversion was used during the bridge construction.

City of Newark Conrail Bridge Replacement over Avenue P, Newark, NJ

This project involved the replacement of the superstructure of the Conrail Railroad bridge over Avenue P in the City of Newark. Due to the inadequate clearance over Avenue P, trucks would constantly hit the existing bridge resulting in severe damages to the existing steel riveted through girders. The newly constructed superstructure raised the extension of the existing abutment, and adjustment of the railroad tracks on top of the bridge deck. The project also included the rehabilitation and drainage improvement of Avenue P.

Small Bridge Design Services Throughout Ocean County, Ocean County, NJ

Ocean County has commissioned HPC with an open-ended contract for various bridge design services around the county. The project typically involves permit procurement and is expected to require field surveys, right-of-way mapping and descriptions, utility relocations, as well as preliminary and final bridge design. When necessary, aerial mapping, environmental studies, subsurface sampling and testing, and traffic signal design will also be included.
